Combatting Immune Disease Through Genomics Analysis! Come join our team and help fight immune diseases.    We need individuals to apply cutting edge big data approaches to study the human immune system. We believe that understanding how the immune system is broken in diseases like cancer and autoimmunity will lead to better patient care. We are looking for highly motivated and creative individuals who enjoy working in a multidisciplinary team-oriented environment to use Systems Biology approaches to discover new mechanisms, biomarkers and therapies for immune diseases.    Benaroya Research Institute at Virginia Mason (BRI) is an internationally recognized medical research institute committed to finding a cure for autoimmune and immune-mediated diseases, through a combination of basic and translational research programs. This means you can contribute to scientific advances that have a direct impact on people afflicted with these diseases, including type 1 diabetes, rheumatoid arthritis, multiple sclerosis, allergies, and asthma. BRI research leadership has identified Bioinformatics as a key enabling technology, so there is broad and strong support for the analysis, and visualization of research data.

The Harrison Lab at the Benaroya Research Institute (BRI) in Seattle, WA is seeking highly-motivated postdoctoral candidates in the areas of mucosal immunology, specifically T and B cell responses to commensal microbes. Benaroya Research Institute is an internationally recognized medical research institute focused on finding cures for autoimmune and immune-mediated diseases. We stress excellence in advanced laboratory experimentation and carefully designed translational research programs. This offers our scientists the opportunity to directly impact the lives of people suffering from diseases including type 1 diabetes, rheumatoid arthritis, multiple sclerosis, allergies and asthma. The Harrison Lab (www.harrison-lab.org) works to understand the mechanisms controlling host-microbe interactions at barrier sites such as the skin and gastrointestinal tract. We study how our resident commensal microbes influence the development, education and function of our immune system. To do so, we utilize a multi-disciplinary approach combining development and implementation of tools to track commensal-specific T and B cells in healthy and inflamed tissues, with single-cell and population level transcriptomics and epigenetic analyses of T and B cell differentiation to investigate how the host mounts and regulates immunity to the microbiome.

The Outreach Coordinator works with the Outreach Supervisor to promote Benaroya Research Institute’s type 1 diabetes (T1D) research to patients, healthcare providers, and T1D groups throughout the Pacific Northwest; and to recruit participants for studies and clinical trials. The role requires strong interpersonal and communication skills (both speaking and writing). An interest in medical science or research is helpful as you must describe research studies and clinical trials in language targeted to either healthcare professionals or a lay audience.   This role may involve recruitment for studies of other diseases of the immune system and therefore you’ll need the ability to quickly comprehend basic scientific concepts of autoimmune diseases and treatments in general. You’ll also write content for emails, letters, newsletters, and flyers that will both inform individuals and providers about study opportunities and engage their interest in study participation.   This role requires strong organizational skills, including making the best use of spreadsheets and online tools to manage contacts with clinics, healthcare providers, type 1 diabetes groups, and patients. Relationships with these groups are critical to our success and this role involves developing new partnerships while maintaining existing relationships using targeted outreach strategies. You must be able to juggle multiple priorities under deadline, work well independently and on a team, and remain calm and adaptable when traveling and during large in-person events. Administrative work is also a big part of this role, including tasks such as inventory management; making copies of study forms and recruitment materials; and daily fielding of phone calls, emails and online inquiries about research or troubleshooting requests. For all aspects of this role, the Outreach Coordinator must have a passion to support research that aims to improve the lives of people living with type 1 diabetes and other autoimmune diseases.   Must be available for overnight travel to research events and conferences in the Pacific Northwest, approximately three to four times per year. Must also be available an additional six to ten evenings and weekends per year, promoting studies and screening research participants locally.
